dc.description.abstractCoos County developed this multi-jurisdictional Natural Hazard Mitigation Plan in an effort to reduce future loss of life and damage to property resulting from natural hazards. This plan was developed with and for the following jurisdictions: Coos County and the cities of Bandon, Coos Bay, Coquille, Lakeside, Myrtle Point, North Bend, and Powers. These are the same jurisdictions that were represented in the 2005 Coos County Natural Hazards Mitigation Plan. It is impossible to predict exactly when natural hazards will occur, or the extent to which they will affect the community. However, with careful planning and collaboration among public agencies, private sector organizations, and citizens within the community, it is possible to minimize the losses that can result from natural hazards. Natural hazard mitigation is defined as a method of permanently reducing or alleviating the losses of life, property, and injuries resulting from natural hazards through long and short-term strategies. Example strategies include policy changes, such as updated ordinances, projects, such as seismic retrofits to critical facilities; and education and outreach to targeted audiences, such as Spanish speaking residents or the elderly. Natural hazard mitigation is the responsibility of individuals, private businesses and industries, state and local governments, and the federal government.en_US
dc.description.sponsorshipThis Natural Hazard Mitigation Plan was developed through a regional partnership funded by the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s Pre-Disaster Mitigation Competitive Grant Program. The Oregon Coast Region grant was awarded to update the natural hazard mitigation plans for the region. This regional effort used a plan update process, plan templates and plan development support provided by the Oregon Partnership for Disaster Resilience at the University of Oregon.en_US
